30 Week Bumpdate

We have officially hit 30 weeks... only 10 (or so!) more to go!

 

Size of baby:  Almost 3lbs or so... like the size of a head of cabbage. WOW!

Symptoms: I learned that his butt is right on my rib cage (thanks 4D ultrasound!) What a little funny guy... loving to be close to his mama :)


Cravings: These have subsided. Food in general is just yummy to my tummy. Actually.... I did have a craving for fried rice a couple nights ago. Yum, carbs!

Something you Miss: Walking without waddling ;)
 
 

Milestones: Seeing our sweet boy in 4D! It was the coolest experience and BEST birthday present ever (thanks hubby)!! Jude was kind of a stinker being so close to my placenta to get some REALLY good shots.... but we got to see his hands a lot and his cute little face. Adorable!!!!!

I created a little (4minute) video of him in the womb set to music. It is so precious here is the video...

(ENJOY! OUR SWEET SON! All the squirmy stuff on the sides is my placenta)

Looking Forward To: Birthing classes start on Thursday night! I can't wait to learn more about the process. I have become obsessed with reading books lately (Babywise & Healthy baby/Healthy sleep). So fun to think about our son and all these fun times ahead... :)

Prayer for our baby this week:

Jesus - What a joy it was to see Jude in 4D on the big screen this past weekend! Thank you for technology and that sweet blessing. He is perfect! We are getting so excited to welcome him into our family and preparing to be the best parents we can be. Continue to help him develop his lungs and especially his brain in these last 10 (or so) weeks in the womb. What a great assurance knowing that you are forming him perfectly! As we read up and gain knowledge in becoming parents - our prayer is that you will be the one directing us. We love you Lord. Amen!

I see you're still wearing your ring! Mine was getting a little irritating and I figured I would take it off before it was too snug :( I miss having it...kinda weird after having worn it for over 2 years.
